I want to learn more about Gannon University's Applied Exercise Physiology program.
Applied exercise physiologists study science and its application to how the body responds to physical activity. Gannon’s applied exercise physiology program provides advanced training in human performance with a focus in biochemistry, nutrition, psychology,
physiology, and sport and clinical exercise physiology so you can improve the performance of elite athletes, recreational movers and the sedentary. Undergraduate students can complete the SES in a five-year option and post-baccalaureate students finish
in one year. Earn your career in applied exercise physiology to become an expert and role model in the sport, physical activity and health professions.
Gain real-world knowledge through key courses including:
Advanced Strength and Conditioning: Gain theoretical and practical knowledge of the physiological, biomechanical, administrative aspects of designing and supervising strength and conditioning programs for various populations.
Psychological Foundations of Performance:
Understand the psychological and emotional factors that influence athletic and nonathletic performance.
Advanced Sport Nutrition: Develop an understanding of the influence of nutrition for acute and chronic biological and physiological adaptations to physical activity and sport.
Students will gain a high-quality education that enables success in the rigors of graduate school or a future profession. Through an array of program opportunities, you can:
